Unique Rope Art Inspired Fashion - Statement Pieces
FIGURE OF A was born from the talent of Anna Kii, Shibari artist and fashion designer.
An aesthetic, sensual and modern collection of accessories inspired by Japanese bondage, to be worn daily or in the evening over a more fetish outfit.
Each piece is made to order, using top quality leather and waxed cotton cord, made to measure, by hand by the designer in London.
Ori means "woven" in Japanese.
This elegant set includes a choker necklace, a pair of bracelets and a double chain.
The metal chain connects the wrists to the necklace with 3 snap hooks.
The chain can be worn in several ways - with the neckband only, being draped around the body or it can be completely detached.
Each piece can be worn individually.
In Japanese, the word "shibari" means "to bind". The contemporary meaning of the word describes an artistic form of bondage.
Originating from the ancient martial art Hojojutsu and the artist, Shunga, torture of Seiu Ito, Shibari was popularized in Japanese erotic magazines in the 1950s. Nowadays, it is a form of aesthetic bondage practiced all over the world, also called Kinbaku.
Traditionally, lengths of natural fibre rope of 5, 6 or 8 mm in diameter are used. The geometric patterns made with the rope contrast beautifully with the natural curves of the body.
The ligature experience is always a collaboration between the "rigger" and the model, the result of which can explore notions of visual beauty, sexuality, power exchange, relaxation and challenges of the body.
